Wow, guess they weren't done with DLC after all. Here's a video, the new content that wasn't in the original Genesis starts at around 18:45.

Genesis 2 is just porting over the digital comic from ME 3 Wii U just like they did with the comic for the PS3 version in ME 2.

It's nice that they put this kind of stuff out. Not having to play through ME1/2 saves a lot of time.

It just sucks that they aren't more comprehensive. Seems like a cash grab.

oh it is lol, but for a few bucks it saves me going through content I have done 3 times fully and move to the ME3 stuff I haven't yet ran through. The money spent is worth the 30-50 Hours it saves IMO.

I'm definitely getting Genesis 2. Just because I want to see the content and it will make future playthroughs quicker.

As for the SR-1 replica, I decided to not get it. I'm fine with the SR-2 one. If they guaranteed a huge quality jump then maybe.

Avoid it like the plague.

As Chubbs said, unless they can GUARANTEE a significant quality jump, don't bother. Dark Horse's ME products have been terrible so far. Why stop now?

If I read it right, Genesis 2 covers the events of ME1 + ME2, so there's no need to get Genesis 1 which does just ME1.

Dunno, feel like Mass Effect overrides the majority of our CAG sides, especially in this thread.

Another good "look back" blog post. I'd really like it if they started to share more about the development of the game and dlc. For instance, I'd love to hear the initial thoughts regardi g the multi. I wonder how it evolved.

On it! Hahaha I got London and Vancouver mixed up, wow. Both I didn't necessarily like either.

Mmmm, hard to pick my favorite map but I eventually went down to Jade. We needed more maps with a Salarian world setting and I loved the height variety on that map.

Well ex co-founder Greg disputes the perception of EA. I'd have to say he probably wouldn't talk about the publisher forcing them to release the game and thus rushing finalizing the product, as it initially just seemed rushed imo. Looking forward to what they can do with the resources that they have now for ME4.

Right now I'm just more excited to see a ME universe game on the Frostbite (3.0?) engine (and dragon age for that matter). I'm highly cautious about any new story direction.

Because if he said something bad about EA, it could come back and bite him (or the rest at BioWare) in the ass. I'm still surprised how many people people bash Activision for releasing CoD year after year, when EA gets a free pass for Madden, Tiger Woods, and just about every other stupid move they've done. "Worst Company of the Year"? More like "Worst Company of the Decade".

And yes, I'm cautiously optimistic about what happens next in the ME universe. I'm just worried what EA will do to the final product.

There's a good article in the latest issue of OXM (June 2013) that has the series main contributors providing insight into the series. It includes Casey Hudson, Preston Watamaniuk, Mac Walters and more. Nothing earth shattering, but it's interesting to hear their thoughts on character deaths, why we didn't have an elcor squadmate, etc.



Plus.....I hated seeing our beloved thread so far down on the page. Just being honest. ;)

Thanks Chubbs, I might check out the digital version of that, just got a Android tablet.

Yeah haha Minecraft does that to you, aside from Pinball FX 2.

Ok, so I think I know the answer already but I would like confirmation

I got the digital deluxe version of ME2 on PC, then later got the vanilla version on Xbox as well. Since BSN kept track of your in game content, I was able to use the bonuses (collector armor & incisor) on both versions.

When I got ME3 I got the vanilla Xbox version, and after seeing how good the N7 weapons are in MP I'm kicking myself. I see this week on GMG the digital deluxe version of ME3 for PC is $12.

So my question is does it work the same way? If I bought it on PC would I be able to use the bonuses on the Xbox version? Or did they change it when they made it activate on Origin. Thanks.

I'd save the money. The N7 weapons aren't that great in singleplayer. You get better weapons as the story goes on. Or, if you really want good weapons, buy one of the weapon packs. Some good weapons in those and cheaper.

I'm not only interested in the weapons. I like having the games on both platforms, plus am interested in the comic, soundtrack, etc that comes with it. I was just wondering if it was even possible to share the weapons across platforms like it was with the second.
